6 Biggest Games Looming on Chicago Bulls' Schedule

Noah and the Bulls are playing better basketball in December.

After starting the season 6-7, the Chicago Bulls have won eight of their past 11 games to get to 14-10 and atop the Central Division of the Eastern Conference. However, the Bulls still have big games looming on their schedule which will determine if they have staying power in the playoff hunt in the conference.

Since a disheartening home loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Nov. 26 in which the Bulls blew a 27-point lead and lost 93-92, the Bulls have been on a roll behind the strong play of Joakim Noah.

In December, Noah is averaging 13.9 PPG to go along with 11.9 RPG and 5.2 APG, playing like an All-Star caliber center. Noah had a 30 point, 23 rebound performance in a Dec. 7 win over Detroit, and just posted a triple-double in the Bulls' most recent win over Boston.

The Bulls are not an elite basketball team with Derrick Rose still on the mend, but they are finding ways to win. 

Head coach Tom Thibodeau has restored his team's identity on the defensive side of the ball, as the Bulls have only surrendered more than 90 points twice in their last 11 games.

While Rose's return still remains uncertain, the Bulls will have plenty of tough tests on their schedule as well as games they can't overlook.  Let's take a look at the biggest games through the end of January:
